New Contemplation Garden to Open as Rosendael Marks Centenary of Poignant Somme Anniversary

Rosendael, a housing facility for ex-UK Armed Forces personnel, will today (Thursday, 18 August) officially open a new commemoration garden to honour the generosity of the Kyd family who bequeathed the home to support the nation’s military veterans. The event also marks the poignant anniversary of the death of the family’s relative, Frank Proctor Kyd, who died in the Battle of the Somme a century ago on this day.
